A US first edition, first impression.
Wrapper : The fragile wrapper on this copy is solid, if a little tired. It is unclipped. The front panel is soiled and shows gentle wear to the edges and the corners. The spine is soiled and lightly bruised and chipped at the ends. The back panel shows light, overall soiling and shows a touch of wear at the top and bottom edges. Looks better than it sounds. Book
: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are very clean. The corners are sharp. The spine ends are gently bruised. The pages are clean. The closed page edges are dusty and a touch toned. No dog-eared pages. The binding is solid - no cracked hinges. A nice copy in a protected wrapper.
